Leaks are one of the most serious issues any homeowner can face. Water damage can cause mold, rot, and musty environments, so it’s important that you detect the leak as early as possible. With expert help from Arry’s Roofing, you can keep your home safe from water damage.
What Causes Leaks?
Your St. Petersburg roofing is composed of several components. It can deteriorate over time due to everyday exposure to intense heat, strong winds, and heavy rain. These elements can cause your shingles to crack, blister, or become loose. High winds can also cause items to puncture through the roof and leave unwanted holes.
Another cause of leaks is improper flashing or poor installation. Flashing covers gaps between valleys and vents so water can’t pass through. Poor installation can also lead to nailing and ventilation issues.
Where Do You Find Leaks?
When you spot leaks from the inside of your home, you should work your way up. You will see water stains along walls and ceilings where water flowed. You can also make your way to the attic to look for holes or punctured areas where water can enter.
You can also find the source of leaks from the outside of your home. From the ground, use binoculars to inspect your roof for missing shingles or exposed layers. You can also spot missing nails, damaged flashing, or punctured areas.
